Bando Hikosaburo V as Nikki Danjo
One of Kunichika's best actor portraits. The patterning on the border is the koraibishi pattern which was usually associated with the actor Matsumoto Koshiro (1764-1838), the actor most associated with this famous Kabuki role of the magician, Nikki Danjo. Hikosaburo V (1832-77) became the "heir apparent" of this great role associated with Koshiro.
